    Default New Member! CDTI 150 SRI

    Hello everyone, I've enjoyed reading through some of the posts on the forum already. I bought a 56 reg CDTI SRI 150 yesterday from auction with 50k on the clock for £3500. Was a little unsettled with the noisy rattle at idle but after reading through the forums and finding the problem have sourced a garage to replace the clutch and flywheel for £600, also managed to round off the oil sump plug whilst trying to change the oil today and thats being sorted for me in the morning. Having said that once it's been done will still be a bargain. Got quoted £5500 value on webuyanycar.com looking forward to contributing some technical knowledge and experiences on here whilst I have my Veccy. Cheers -Dan

    Thanks to everyone for all the welcomes It's in the local car garage at the moment, would have had a go myself but it's a bit difficult under axle stands without all the tools. There are a few ways to get them out, you can get a decent file to make 2 straight edges then get the mole grips on there. Alternatively it can be drilled and counter screwed out, either way you'lll need a new sump plug. Seems whoever had the car last didnt really look after it as the oil hasnt been changed in about 2 years, plus it was overtightened I reckon. I did the rest of the service though and once it's all sorted should be a good drive
